HARRISON, N.J. - Bradley Wright-Phillips scored his MLS-leading 18th goal of the season and the 10-man Red Bulls beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Wright-Phillips curled in a left-footed shot in the 63rd minute for his ninth goal in his last 10 games. He's a goal away from tying the single-season club record set by Juan Pablo Angel in 2007.
